T’ai Chi: The Path of a Lifetime

Plainly stated, T’ai Chi is for everyone and every body. It can be practiced by people of any age, physical condition, gender, culture or religion. T’ai Chi is truly an exercise in “human being.”

      Originally developed for self-defense, T’ai Chi Ch’uan (Taijiquan) has evolved into a graceful form of exercise that, with regular practice, can be used as a major tool to improve memory, reduce stress and regain and maintain external and internal balance. The results of regular T’ai Chi practice have been shown effective in improving circulation, lowering the center of gravity, deepening breathing and safely limbering joints and muscles. Often described as meditation in motion, T’ai Chi promotes serenity and good health through gentle, flowing movements. The movements are Zen in focus as they keep you in the moment.

        Any journey is in itself the goal. Take the time to recognize and enjoy the beauty of your life’s path.

Location: Healing Path Massage Therapy, 484 Schooly’s Mountain Road, Hackettstown. Schedule: Saturdays, 10-11:15am. Tuesdays, 7:15, 8:30pm. For questions and information, contact Lynn at 908-625-0199 or email TaiChi86@EarthLink.net.
